Titlington Pike is only 700ft asl with a raggy ridge thats not too steep and the face is only 260 ft tall but.. it can produce some very good lift in the right conditions ? remember the hill is just a start...

Lords seat -site guide

Hi Gary, I'm not surprised to read it got interesting when the wind went off to the south west ! you are being rotored.. The old site guide (paper file) its noted as a safety issue and the old web site it was noted there as well. We need to get this safety issue noted in the new web site guide asap.
